After spending a number of days in the "outback" of Kenya, we searched Kisumu for hours to find clean, comfortable accommodations with running water for a hot shower. Late in the evening, after looking at seven other hotels which were already booked up (around 10pm) we finally came upon Le Savanna, based on TripAdvisor recommendations, and suggestions from another hotel....

I saw a previous review and the reviewer mentioned the stay was not up to U.S. standards, I would basically agree. However, the staff was very attentive and accomodating, especially Peter and Ezekiel at the front desk. The housekeeping was very good. The food was ok, they advertised buffets but ran out of food before the scheduled end. The pool... More

My wife and I spent a week at Le Savanna in January 2015. While it wasn't up to US standards, it was very pleasant. The facility is sort of a compound, surrounded by a high wall. Within, it is very attractively landscaped--really quite pretty. Outside the wall, we didn't feel very comfortable about the neighborhood. I should mention that the... More

We called late evening looking for family accommodation after a mix-up at our reserved hotel. The staff were fantastic responding to my family accommodation needs, processed our check-in very efficiently. It is a very secure quiet location. The rooms are basic but ok for one-night stay - and things work i.e. DsTv, showers, sockets. The restaraunt serves decent meals and... More

After a horrendous stay at a previous hotel, at last I found the place. Quiet and the sound you hear is birds chirping. Comfy rooms, wifi great, AC most welcome after walking in the sweltering heat in Kisumu. Fantastic staff and food! Please maintain the standards as most hotels start as very good and just become complacent and go down... More

Enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere, the pool and accompanying bar and patio, and the inner courtyard where breakfast was served. Rooms were fine -- nothing fancy but clean, comfortable and functional. Very safe (complete with electric fence) and it served as a good centre for our travels to the nearby countryside.

The place is central and affordable. Ideal for a short term stay and the rooms are quiet and comfortable. The customer service is great and the place is secure. In a town with few accommodation options, this is an ideal place.

This was a little slice of paradise in an otherwise chaotic area. One you entered the hotel grounds the chaos of Kisumu seemed far away. Negative remarks aside, I would stay at this hotel again and order the breaded tilapia many times over. The pool is small with no deep end - but it's more than adequate for an afternoon... More

We stayed two nights at Le Savanna Country Hotel and decided it was an average place to stay. We originally booked a suite but asked to change to another location as the suite was located on the ground floor right beside the driveway and path the servers take back and forth from the kitchen to the pool. Plus they were... More

Staying at the hotel for approx 6 weeks certainly gave me a good experience of the hotel and service, both of which I could hardly fault. Special thanks must go to staff who are great, both efficient and friendly. Security is very reassuring. The location is not central and without transport can be restrictive. Food is good and the chefs... More
